Hello from Deborah Ashley and Happy International Postcard Week!

This is a first for me on multiple accounts:  my first time participating in International Postcard Week and my first time sharing my art!  I painted the apple on this post card just weeks ago and now declare myself an artist sharing my art with the world!

Thank you for sharing both of these firsts with me!

All the best, indeed!

International Postcard Week 2017
October 1-7

I exchange quirky, off-beat, artsy non-touristy postcards as well as my own one-off collage, mixed media and altered postcards with folks all over the world.  I'm a member of Postcrossing and active in a number of groups on Swap-bot.  I love mail art and spend more money on postage than I do on food!  This is the first year I've participated in IPW and the first time I've made copies from one of my hand made postcards.

May your mailbox be full of wonderful surprises!
Linda Ballou

This is postcard number 3 in a limited edition of 25.

Oh! kangaroos, sequins, chocolate sodas!
You really are beautiful! Pearls,
harmonicas, jujubes, aspirins!
all the stuff they've always talked about
 still makes a poem a surprise!
These things are with us every day
even on the beachheads and biers.
They do have meaning.  They're strong as rocks.

-Frank O'Hara, 1950

This postcard is from Justin Ward.
It is number 8 in a Limited Edition of 50.
